    Hi!

    I have noticed some bites/irritation recently and did some sleuthing in my bedroom area. I found these clumps of what look like bug casings / on the bed frame.

    Having done some reading / research I think (?) they are from carpet beetles? Would be grateful for an expert or more experienced opinion.

    Thank you so much.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding.
